Thanks to all our Cleanup Heroes for making our Saturday event such a success! 277 volunteers at the Kingman Island site removed more than 268 bags of trash, 291 bags of recyclables, and 125 bulk items from the Anacostia River! We could not have achieved this without your support. Thank you for helping to make sure the Anacostia is NOT "D.C.'s Forgotten River."
P.S. If you have any pictures please send them our way – you may see yourself on our Facebook and Pinterest pages!
We look forward to seeing you next year when we celebrate the 21st Annual Earth Day River Cleanup in April 2014!

Volunteers are also invited to the post-cleanup Earth Day Celebration at Kingman Island for free food and entertainment! Come share the satisfaction that comes with taking care of our communities and natural resources!
